I’ve developed into a BIG fan of this guy and i must say, for a pleasant change, a major label (RCA) seems to have got it right with the way they’ve built up an Soul / R&B artists output.
Anyhow let’s not speak to soon. Bottom line is Lucky Daye is a talent i’m interseted in championing and the album ‘Painted’ is a fantastic debut outing. After spinning ‘Karma’, and ‘Real Games’ from the EP II, my favourite album cut is definitely ‘Extra’. However there is no video for that presently so i wanted to share another great video cut from the debut set.
Check the album ‘PAINTED’ and in the meantime enjoy this!

Etta Bond is definitely on my page with this wonderful set of heartfelt songs from her two albums released simultaneously. Both oozing with a wholelottasoul.
‘He’s [not] Mine’ and ‘He’s Mine’ are albums you need in your life if you’re remotely into Soul / R&B so go get it.
In the meantime..Enjoy this!!

Grammy-nominated Soul singer, Leon Bridges has just dropped his highly anticipated sophomore album ‘Good Thing’. The 10-track album features the singles ‘Bad Bad News’, ‘Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand’ and ‘Beyond’. It’s a contemporary soul/R&B album, however, he has Jazz/Funk driven tracks such as ‘Bad Bad News’. Leon Bridges rose to notoriety in 2015 when he released his first album, ‘Coming Home’, the album channelled early ’60s R&B which caught the attention of many. Bridges sweet soul music is bringing a new flavour to R&B and this new album is cementing his path within the industry.

I’ve always been a massive fan of this lady so was extremely happy when I heard her announce she’d be dropping an album in the fall called ‘Passion Like Fire’ also quoted in this Salaam Remi produced / Co written gem.

Salaam is a production giant developing hits for the Fugees, Amy Winehouse, Nas and Miguel and he’s locked in his familiar hip hop soul stamp on this beauty of a record.

This will be the former Quincy Jones’ protégé’s 7th studio album coming via (e)one (entertainment one) and I’m hoping the rest of the album has input from Salaam because Tamia sits beautifully in this lane.

Enjoy this piece of audio niceness

Lauryn Hill is set to embark on a massive tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut and only solo studio album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.

According to The Fader, she’ll perform the classic LP in full and the 29 date North American tour will commence July 5th 2018 in Virginia Beach.

There’s nothing to suggest she’ll be bringing the tour this side of the pond but hopefully if she does it will truly reflect the albums original versions and not the reggae-rockified versions she delivered last time round.

Watch this space!

Alicia Keys is back in a big way!! Dropping a seriously addictive track, ‘In Common‘ which delivers dancehall undertones perfect for the summer!

Produced by Illangelo, known for producing Drake, The Weeknd and Majid Jordan, the track is a fresh, slightly unexpected sound for Alicia Keys.

Details of a new album are yet to be announced, but fans can catch Alicia as a judge on the new season of The Voice in the US later this year and you can pick up the new track here
